If you can deal with the language and you liked Talladega Nights, you will probably enjoy this movie. The swearing is a bit off-putting but definitely some funny parts.
Is this what politics is really like?? Scary thought.

This movie was a huge disappointment. It had all the humor of a 13 year old preadolescent boy, but maybe that is being too harsh on 13 year old boys. With so much political fodder out there, it is mystifying that the writers chose to economize with their words by simply reusing f...k over and over and over...again. I am a fan of Will Ferrell, but this was a caricature Mr. Ferrell gone horribly awry. Skip this one.

How timely this movie is and how good the script plays out on both characters. Politics under a magnifying glass and an amount of humor that is so amazingly funny that the laughter adds 5 years to your life. The theater (AMC Century City) was completely sold out and right so.
Even if you hate politics, this film will give you pure entertainment.
Two thumbs up!

I liked the promos for this movie and being an observer of the politics I wanted to see the movie from the first time I heard about it. Despite its R rating I took my 14 years old son with me to the theatre.
I checked the ratings of the movie at Fandango and noticed that Fans' average rating was either Go or Must Go, while the overall critics' rating was so-so. I took a quick look at some of the high ratings from critics as well as some of the average reviews. I was determined to go regardless of any negative comments.
Overall, I was disappointed with the movie. Many of the jokes were really "lame" and I just could not pretend that I liked them. My son, on the other hand, was laughing throughout the movie and his overall feeling about the movie was very positive. I took the time to explain to him & relate some of the scenes in the movie to real life situations such as influence of money in politics etc.
There were not too many people in the theatre on Saturday night at 7 pm

Great movie and very relevent to the political atmosphere. The Koch brothers and Mitt Romney and his cronies need to see this movie to see what they're doing to the American People. Loved it and highly recommend it to anyone who is as sick of Washington as I am.
